Based on the other reviews, I was clearly at the Museo Tamayo during the wrong month. The 2 installations were boring, lacking color and made for a brief visit. I am an avid art lover, but there was nothing here to embrace. Sorry, reality check!

The Tamayo is a relatively smaller museum compared with the others in Mexico City. It is easily manageable in about an hour and has a permanent as well as rotting collection. It is located across the street from the Modern Museum so easy to see...More

We wanted to see some of Tamayo’s works, but the museum has closed the main exhibit hall to set up a new exhibition. It’ll reopen in mid-December. They have a couple of small exhibits open by other artists. The gift shop / bookstore is fantastic!...More

Tamayo is small — when we visited there were only two exhibits. Fortunately they were both spectacular in our opinion. I’m forgetting the names of the artists — and obviously results may vary based on what’s up when you visit and what you prefer. Our...More

I am a big fan of Tamayo’s art and this was on my must see list. It is also across the way from the Museum of Modern Art and close to the Anthropology Museum. Seeing all three in one day is do-able but not recommended....More

Probably one of the most poorly curated museums we've ever been to. Most definitely not worth a special trip. Have a look if in the area otherwise you can skip this one. Note: the adjoining restaurant is fantastic as is the museum store.

This is an unusual museum with interesting exhibits. Very manageable size and close to the other major museums. If you have an interest in modern art, it is worth stopping here.

Not so big nicely curated museum. It displays some expos now and again which are really cool. Never boring always entertaining. I love this museum!

Jawdropping. I learned & felt so much. Trevor Paglen's exhibit was phenomenal. Cheap tickets, lots to see, rooms a bit difficult to navigate.

Showing until the end of September 2018, the Trevor Paglen exhibit about AI and facial recognition/technology is pretty interesting and worth a visit. I also enjoyed seeing the portraits of Tamayo and his wife through the years as a reflection on aging.

Mind we visited the museum almost 6 months ago. There were works by R. Tamayo, but they were not the main display.
